Re: Most important political move on the history of wrestling
I'm going to say The Curtain Call and the events surrounding that.
Now if you think about it, had that never happened and Hall & Nash never left, SCSA's push would have likely been paused, as the plan was for HHH to win it in '96. But after that happened, Hall & Nash left to start 1 of the biggest angles in wrestling history, HBK became more of the asshole character he portrayed in 97-98, HHH's push was halted, resulting in him not getting past the lower mid card for over a year and also resulted in the rise of SCSA and the birth of Austin 3:16, which with the t-shirts, became the modern day Hulkamania phenomenon.
A lot of positive for the wrestling business came from that 1 moment.
